Solution Features

  • It is possible to check the tools and equipment on the screen, improving the accuracy of assembly work after cleaning.
  • Schedule control allows pre- planning and preparation of required equipment.
  • Sterilization date/time is obtained from the sterilization equipment data and sterilization expiry for each container is controlled according to the sterilization method (high pressure steam, gas, etc.).
  • Security ensured with entry of user name and password settings.
  • Keeps three major areas of "rotation" completely separate: patients, equipment supply (clean area), and recovery (unclean area).
  • Data copied to multiple computers to provide backup against accidental deletion.
